Rabada finished with three wickets, Olivier three and Steyn two.

It was Olivier who made a double breakthrough in the third over of play on Monday when he removed Babar Azam - another searing bouncer targeting the batsman's throat - and Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed first ball - a handsome delivery that nipped back and hit off-stump.

With the conclusion of the Test series, the teams will now start preparing for the five-match ODI series - which is scheduled to begin on January 19 in Port Elizabeth.

"It's a good way to start the year, we have set our goals and are halfway there with one more test series against Sri Lanka to come". "He bowled very well and he bowled fast".

Olivier effectively ended Pakistan's hopes when he took two wickets off successive balls in the third over of the morning.

It was his first century against Pakistan and also his first on his initial home ground and made sure that he will finish the series as South Africa's leading runs scorer. Mohammad Abbas, who supported from the other end, was run out for 9, moments before lunch.

Tehran Warns Poland: Don't Side with U.S. Against Iran
Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri said the summit was being held because U.S. sanctions had failed to bring Iran to its knees. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has denounced the planned event in Poland as a "desperate anti-Iran circus".

Olivier's tally over the three games, the second highest by a South African in a three-match series, is just one behind record-holder Buck Llewellyn, who took 25 wickets against Australia in 1902.

Remarkably, in comparison with what has happened earlier in this match and previously in the series, only 8 wickets fell on day three as Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock made their overnight partnership for the sixth wicket worth 102 before the former departed (71 off 144 balls, 14 fours).

"We were in a nice position after the first day (having bowled South Africa out for 262), but could not capitalise on that with our batting", Sarfraz said. Well done to them.

While sharing his thoughts about the positives gained from the series, the Pakistan skipper said: "Shan Masood played really well and also the way Babar showed his class".

Resuming the fourth morning requiring seven wickets for victory, the Proteas seamers made early inroads into the Pakistani batting line up, breaking the unsafe partnership between Asad Shafiq and Babar Azam, the latter edging a ripper of a ball from Duanne Olivier for 21.
